Soundtracks: @harkathon’s Record Club #4 at @leedsmusichub

Films, television, game soundtracks all featured in this month’s Record Club picks, as well as some interested takes on audiovisual combinations and music inspired by moving picture! Ever true to form, there was some intellectual talk (including cinematic leitmotifs and chromesthesia) but also plenty of pop and low culture – Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and the Spice Girls Movie, anyone?
